Week of 1-6 Nov

1 Nov, Tue

After my morning cycling trip to ECP on Tue (Deepavali)...got back to do some work...
Guess wat? At 5pm, my boss...the research work one...called me to ask me to do something...repeat the QSAR thingy...wah!!! holiday also call me like that!!

2 Nov, Wed

Went back to school at 7am...sat in front of the computer til ard noon...not just one computer...but two...one is the linux one with the modelling software and the other one is my own laptop where i have all my data in an excel spreadsheet lah...wah...i was so stoned by the time i was done with the work...

Showed the results to my boss when she came at ard noon...since she's on leave...apparently she'll always be back in school...even if she's on leave...unless she's not in s'pore...siao liao...my boss so onz...I'm a slacker leh :P

Anyway, after lunch...stoned til 4.30pm when my other boss...angmoh one...came along with his wife...WAT??!! why his wife also come??!!...presented the results...hmm...need more inactive compound to make the QSAR study better...he'll send me the structures and IC50 once he can dig out those values :P
Meanwhile maybe I can start trying to synthesize one of the compounds..the compound which have been studied the most...then later on maybe can also try some new analogues!! So exciting...play with chemicals...expensive chemicals man...1g of one of my starting material is almost S$400...think that's abt 5mmol...hmm...gotta find a cheaper source man...if not maybe i have to synthesize that starting material liao :S

After that meeting, it was time to go to WORK...at HLC...so stoned liao...hopefully i dun give the wrong medicine at work??!!!
Hue Kian was superbly busy when I arrived...she's supposed to have left!! anyway, it was a busy nite for me there...sianz...why cannot slack??!!

Anyway, will check out the price in Sim Lim before I buy...
Running Lab is cool...so many things...but I shall resist the temptation to buy...esp when I dun think I need anything...I really like the "Life is Good" t-shirts they have there though ;) My birthday coming up next month...*hint hint* :P

AFter that, it's really time to go home...to finished up my lab rotation report...which I just found out was due on Thur...thought it was Sat all the while...oops...nvm lah...the lab rotation report quite easy to write lah ;)
